You many need a lot of time if it is your first retro. Although I heard an RX350 projector will bolt in with our stock projector, I'm not sure if we need to modify a little bit like an MDX projector.

2008 Toyota Camry LE I4 - Modifications as if they come with the car.
- TRD wheels, TRD suspensions
- OEM replica navigation with iGo/Tomtom/...
- Folding LED signal side mirrors with JDM control switch
- HID retrofit headlights with S2000 projectors and Denso ballasts, fog lights

just to clarify a few things:
gen 6:
D2s MDX projectors fit with no modification at all. all that you need to do is make a small squire notch on the bottom of the shield-very easy and takes only 2 min to do it. you can swap lenses, add washers, modify cut off too, but MDX projectors will fit in their OEM form and deliver great result.
gen6.5:
D2r RX350 bi-xenon ASF and non ASF
projectors, both fit, but non ASF version is a direct swap and ASF version shield need to be modified in order to be mounted into the Gen 6.5 housing. it's not really hard and can be done. Also, if you don't care about bi-xenon future, you can use camry OEM shields with RX350 bowls. all that you need to do is to drill one small hole in the shield.

Should probably say this too. For you gen 6'ers, be careful of the MDX projectors you get. You want 07-09s I believe.

07 and up, or HID projectors.
pre 2007 are halogen and identical to the gen 6 halogen projectors.

TRS sent me 10's the first time and they didn't fit, Acura must of altered them a bit when they refreshed the MDX's that year.

hmm... I bought two broken lights off 2010 MDX (at least seller stated so), pulled projectors out and they fit just fine...
did yours had a bigger shields, different mounting points, bigger bowl?
what was different vs "normal" 2007-9 MDX projectors?
